American Master Chefs' Order

About Us

The American Master Chefs' Order (AMCO) are chefs who have dared to push themselves both mentally and physically to their cooking limits by stepping into the gauntlet known as the American Culinary Federation Certified Master Chef® Exam.

The few who have been successful in obtaining this certification are a very close alliance with many things in common. We have a deep understanding, affection and respect for our craft. We invite all to follow us as we strive, through food, to lift the social fabric of the world one Certified Master Chef® at a time.

As you would expect, our places of labor represent many of the top properties, venues and businesses that make up the channels of our very broad industry.

Our Mission
